What I learned on a Weekend Away Unplugged from the World

By Krista Smith / May 1, 2018

I’m just back from a heavenly long weekend in Florida with my daughter. Beach, sun, sand, and reading (fiction: Circe by Madeline Miller and non-fiction: Building a StoryBrand by Donald Miller). I can tell you that I spent about six hours staring at the ocean in total. Yes, it was heavenly. I listened to her pounding surf. I breathed in her salty air. I pondered. I imagined. I dreamed. When was the last time you gave yourself permission to think? To stare into space and just let your mind wander? It’s likely not a surprise to you that my mind…

A candid look behind the scenes of my business, just for you!

By Krista Smith / May 25, 2017

I wanted to show up today with a personal and heartfelt explanation of what’s been happening since I last posted on my blog. I’ve kinda been MIA. My family grew by one in the late fall of last year. We now have a second fun-loving fur baby named Riley who’s taken up WAY more time than I anticipated! He and the cat, Alice, still don’t get along though I wish she’d just take a big ole swat at him and it’d be over! I’ve been spending a lot of time over at Web Designer Beauty School where I teach web design…

How Crystals Work and Which 5 Every Boss Needs to Keep Close By

By Krista Smith / October 3, 2016

Minerals, gems, and crystals have been used as tools for manifesting and healing for hundreds of years. They can help physical and emotional blockages. Personally, I like to utilize the benefits of healing gemstones and crystals to promote my own free flowing + positive energy. I believe the natural energy and metaphysical properties of the healing stones are working all the time to balance my mind, body and soul. The crystals not only hold my intentions but actually help manifest them faster. Think about it. Think about how grounded you feel after you take a walk in nature. When you feel the…

10 things you need to know if you’re doing this thing called being a boss

By Krista Smith / March 8, 2016

Before my journey into entrepreneurship, I was a teacher. I helped to shape the minds of our future generations. I’m now teaching women how to activate their own awesome through workshops, retreats, courses, and coaching. I’m also using the skills I honed as “the computer expert” on staff when I was working as a teacher to build websites for more amazing women. Standing fully in my own zone of genius means teaching, creating, and coaching. It took me some time (read: years!) to identify the three areas that truly lit me up. And, as I’m sure any creative entrepreneur will…

3 Mistakes Introverts Make by Thinking They’re Not Good at Marketing

By Krista Smith / February 23, 2016

I’ve noticed a lot of people leaning into their introversion lately. I wanted to lend my own introverted voice to the bigger conversation that I believe is also happening. (Fellow introverts will understand just how hard this really is!) Firstly, it’s important to acknowledge that introversion means you focus on the inner world and get energy through reflecting on information, ideas, and/or concepts. You actually prefer being alone and are comfortable with your own thoughts & ideas. Extroverts, on the other hand, focus on the outside world to get energy through interacting with people and/or doing things. They actually get…

3 Smart Strategies to Attract More Business

By Krista Smith / July 12, 2015

My teenage daughter and I are currently making our way across Europe. It’s incredible. Last night I sat watching the sunset over the Aegean Sea and thought about our experiences thus far. As I sat with breeze blowing in my hair and the sweet smell of the sea air, I was quickly reminded how slowing down can help the women I work with gain some serious traction in attracting more clients. I thought about how my daughter and I started this journey alone, not knowing what to expect. And how after our first few hours, we got to know and…
